We stayed for 5 nights in early December. We have been to at least eight All Inclusives in Cancun and this one ranked up there. We had booked a regular room but we upgraded to an oceanfront. The room was great and it had a private 'patio' with a hammock, table and chairs and two lounge chairs. The patio was private with nothing above it but the sky. We were at first turned off by the 2nd floor 'buffet which had dried out hot dogs and hamburgers. We then went to lunch at one of the restaurants and had the most delicious grouper dinners we ever had. We booked there the next day and had a New York strip steak that was well seasoned and tender. We repeated that on another night. The breakfast buffet was great with eggs made to order and lots of fruits and Danish. The beer was Corona and most of the AI's in Mexico do not serve that except as an upgrade. Some of the shows were loud but we did not go there to sleep all of the time and they were over by 10:30 PM or so. We had read a lot of bad revues about this place but did not find any of those negatives during our stay. Also it pays to tip the servers every once in awhile. I rate the food a little lower because of the 2nd floor buffet.
